Booked for my hubby birthday. Fabulous place in great surroundings can see why people would choose to get married there. The small suits of armery catch your eyes very cute. It's steeped in history all around you from tapestry, lighting and portraits. The grounds were very well kept and inviting bench to sit on before and after the meal.

Staff were attentive and foods was delicious. It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was full so make sure you book in advance.

Next time we will book accommodation super impressive rooms.

Relaxing stay

First time stay we were in the castle in the Percy Room. The room was of a good quality and clean as expected. The food was of a high standard and good quality for both the evening meal and breakfast. For the evening we didn't eat in the restaurant but rather ate in the drawing room off the casual dining menu. Staff service was good and attentive. WiFi was hit and miss but not too much of a concern. The grounds are beautiful and offer the chance to see some wildlife (peacocks and hedgehogs) so are great for a walk. As others have said rates are expensive but great for that special treat occasion.

Great location shame about the food

Great location, superbly turned out location but unfortunately the food was lacking something, nothing was bad, just not the fine dining experience I’d expected. Pork starter was a bit anounymous flavour wise and the lamb main was again nothing spectacular, not specifically bad, it just didn’t stand out as anything exceptional, maybe I just caught the chef on a bad day (it was a Sunday), still it’s a nice place and good service,

Lovely setting

The place is beautiful, but we were in a room across the way from the main building which we didn't realize. When going in for dinner it was raining which meant we got wet walking across. I recommend a room in the main castle.
Food in restaurant is amazing, although service a little slow and I was brought the wrong meal on one of the nights.

Very nice and great character.

Our first visit for a few years but still a very nice place. Great character castle main building with a new glass pavilion extension for lunchtime dining.
Staff were good and friendly and the food was very nice.
